Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 6/13/91
3.5 Stars - Good Plus "...pairs postmodern thrust with retro detailing, goofy lyrics with serious messages....Its rich contours and blackadelic shades, ranging from R&B to rock, gospel to pseudo jazz bop, make it an oasis in the desert of post-hip-hop half-stepping."

Product Description:

Chain consists of ten tracks traveling in different directions. The much ballyhooed "Ghetto Heaven" attempts to capture the power of Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield in social significancy but has the impact of a mosquitoe. It gets better with "Only" which has a mock reggae beat that bottoms an infectious melody; "In Summer I Fall" is a sweet beat ballad with a warm lead from Sandra St. Victor. "Oversaxed" displays V. Jeffrey Smith smooth sax skills. "The Last Temptation" owes as much to gospel as it does soul, and exemplifies the diversity of this LP. The title track "Chain," is melodic in a muddy way, the muffled sound gives the shuffling rhythm an eerie effect. Third member Peter Lord contributes vocals and his immense keyboard skills to a project that doesn't equal the sum of the individuals involved. ~ Andrew Hamilton
